I am a friendly and approachable tutor and I am passionate about sharing my love for Maths. From my own experience, Maths is a subject which requires hard work to understand and appreciate so I really focus on building resilience and self-confidence in my students. Developing transferable skills, such as problem solving skills, is also key to my approach. The students should see that as their Mathematics ability improves, so does their performance in their other subjects.
When teaching a concept I will give a brief review of the topic, giving some of the reasoning behind it or linking it to concepts that the student has already learnt. I will ask the student questions and give them problems throughout to check their understanding, increasing in difficulty as necessary.
Hello, I'm Rhiannon and I'm a recent First Class MMath Mathematics graduate from the University of Oxford. I have over four years of experience tutoring Mathematics online and in-person from Primary to A-Level. I am currently tutoring Maths GCSE at both foundation and higher level in local schools.
Additionally, I have worked for the University of the Oxford and the AMSP as a MAT mentor, and I have experience tutoring students online for the MAT and other Mathematics admissions tests. During my time at Oxford, I was an ambassador for both my college and the Mathematics department so I am very familiar with the admissions process and can help with interview preparation and writing personal statements.
I also have experience teaching students whose first language isn't English. In 2018, I taught English in China for a few months and last summer I taught Mathematics at a respected international summer school based at Eton College.
MMath Mathematics - The University of Oxford - First Class Honours
A Levels - Ilkley Grammar School - Mathematics (A*), Further Mathematics (A*), Physics (A*), Chemistry (A*)

Perfect! Rhiannon is clear and easy to understand even with very complicated concepts. Rhiannon had carefully prepared for it and selected some very interesting maths to look at. I very much enjoyed the tutorial.
In our session today we did a Maths mock interview. I was really impressed with how Lara reasoned through the questions, she showed great subject knowledge and was able to apply her knowledge in unusual ways. We will do more practise on number theory questions in future sessions. Next session Lara will present her solution to a curve sketching question I will send her, and we will discuss some further curve sketching questions.
